This study aims to clarify the concept of 'Low-carbon urban regeneration', to extract planning elements according to it, and to establish the planning system. In order to extract the elements, matrix analysis was conducted between planning elements of urban regeneration and Low-carbon cities, and the focus group interview(FGI) was used. Derived elements from this process were restructured for the new planning system. In addition, in-depth case analysis was performed to verify the suitability and effects of planning elements and system. The result showed that planning element of Low-carbon urban regeneration can be sorted in 37 elements in 5 categories. In-depth analysis indicated that established planning elements were importantly dealt in cases and played a significant role in urban regeneration and carbon reduction. Also, it showed that those elements had a significant relationship with adaptation and mitigation, the two responding strategies to the climate change. Elements highly contributing to urban regeneration were Urban Structure, Transportation, Policy while elements affecting carbon reduction were Transportation, Green & Blue space, Energy & Material field.
